A Stalemate, Not a Mandate
The election of 2012 was the perfect status quo event. On November 6 Americans by the millions went through a massive exercise of going to the polls and voting, only to awake the next morning to find that nothing had changed—other than a welcome respite from the incessant phone calls from the campaign headquarters. There was the same president, the same majority party in the House of Representatives, and the same majority party in the Senate. John Boehner was still Speaker of the House, and Harry Reid Majority Leader of the Senate. Above all, the election seemed to offer no feeling...

Same old tired NONSENSE!
When the GOP wins....they WIN!
When a democrat wins....it's not a REAL win.Logic and Reason is all you need.

I haven't made a trade in a few months. I don't see why that would matter either way."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution" - John Adams, March 4, 1797 – March 4, 1801

So I take curiousity is not wanted on here?I did not say anything negative just a simple question,which now is causing hysteria.I just noticed he or she was involved in alot of the political posts and no sports related posts.I was just curious why that's all.Nothing meant by it

we see you're saying there was no attack behind, but all we are saying I guess is why would a question like that even matter or be anything viable for him to answer. Maybe he just doesn't use this site for trading. My next trade will be my 200th here, I'm close to 10,000 posts for my time here. But I'm also on blowoutcards message forum as well for just about two years and haven't made a single trade on there. THIS is my trading site though nowadays I use both forums equally
Also when you look at it his post average from when he became a member and your post average aren't that far off from one another

Obviously, from your own observations, you can see that Alex uses this site to express his political and religious views. The mere fact you are asking a question that you already know the answer to suggests that it is more than just a simple matter of curiosity.
